The gloves are off! Trump goes after soft-on-crime Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg...• By JEN SMITH, ROB CRILLY, EMILY GOODIN
Former President Donald Trump has launched a social media assault on Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, the Democratic prosecutor going after him for alleged fraud, and even took aim at his wife in the most recent round of complaints since he was indicted last night.
Trump, 76, will be arraigned in Manhattan at 2.15pm on Tuesday on an array of business fraud charges relating to 2016 hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. He has denied any personal wrongdoing, and says he is the victim of a politically-motivated witch hunt led by the famously Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
The charges are not yet known - only once he is formally charged in person will the indictment become unsealed.
While he waits for that to happen, Trump is not holding back in his criticism of Bragg.
Today, he reposted several news videos and campaign trailers by Bragg's opponents, which described him as one of the worst DAs in the country and shamed him for not prosecuting many violent crimes.
Bragg is among a handful of Democratic prosecutors around the country who has received funding from mega-donor George Soros.
Not only does Trump think that Bragg is motivated by political hatred - he also brought his wife into the discourse today, posting tweets by a RealClearPolitics journalist who said she'd previously shared her own disdain for the president online.
